three years pass...

Netflix Inc. has quietly stopped shipping DVDs from its distribution centers on Saturdays, a cost-cutting move that signals the company is easing out of the DVD subscription service and keeping its focus on online streaming.

The change comes as Netflix is shedding hundreds of thousands of its DVD customers every quarter, yet gaining as many for its online streaming business continues to grow.

By ending shipments on Saturdays, the company can cut payroll and, one analyst said, save as much as 10% annually on the money it spends to send and receive DVDs to and from customers.

"You end up taking some costs out of the system, which is needed as they get fewer and fewer subscribers on DVD," said Janney Montgomery Scott analyst Tony Wible.

He figured that ending Saturday shipments could save Netflix $14 million this year and $12 million next year. Previously, he had estimated that Netflix's total shipping costs would be $140 million this year and $117 million next year.

Other analysts agreed that it was time for Netflix to make some moves regarding its DVD business.

seven years pass...

The Stanley Nelson documentary on crack in the '80s is good--he did the Miles Davis American Masters from a few years ago.

clemenza, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:41 (six months ago) link

Seven years--I suppose there's a more relevant Netflix thread.

clemenza, Friday, 11 March 2022 16:42 (six months ago) link

To answer the thread question, nothing now, whereas I usually have 15-20 things there. So for the first time ever I'm on the verge of cancelling the DVD part of my membership, if not cancelling everything.

They just don't have any DVDs anymore, do they? I've scrounging around the site looking for scraps to put in the queue and finally I just don't think there's anything left.

I illegally downloaded RRR. And let me tell you it is up there with Young Mr Lincoln and Rear Window and it pishes all over Heat. 3 hours that passed more like 90 mins.
